Cerrone Coach Dismissive Of McGregor's Chances To Win Donald Cerrone faces what many consider his toughest challenge to date, in a bout with Conor McGregor. However, his coach does not think the fight is that hard. Cerrone has been fighting in the UFC for a long time, bouncing between lightweight and welterweight. As a result, he has earned more wins inside the Octagon than anyone. He has truly faced the best of the best over the years. Now, Cerrone will be facing off against former lightweight champ Conor McGregor. The bout, which takes place at 170lb, is certainly the biggest of his career. Although many people have been dismissive of his chances to win, saying he has little chance. One person who thinks the opposite, is Jafari Vanier, head coach to Donald Cerrone. Speaking in Cowboy's docuseries "More Than A Cowboy," Vanier explains that his student has more ways to win than the Irishman. (h\/t MMAJunkie) "If I were to look at the two, he\u2019s got a lot more to worry about than we do,\u201d said Vanier, regarding McGregor's chances over Cerrone. \u201cWe\u2019ve got multiple submission victories, head-kick knockout victories, we\u2019ve got decisions. He just has a left hand. You don\u2019t see Conor submitting anybody, you don\u2019t even see the guy going on the ground \u2013 very rare, right? Not saying we\u2019re going to force the fight to the ground, but what I\u2019m saying is he\u2019s got a lot more to worry about than we do." Specifically, Vanier says Cerrone only has to worry about the left early on. "We just have to worry about a left hand in that first round \u2013 him coming out on fire,\u201d Vanier said. \u201cYou\u2019ve never really seen (Cerrone) ever gas. After the first round and a half for Conor, (he) fades. There\u2019s not a lot of pop in that left hand any more, footwork goes down, his hands are heavy. So I mean these are all things that you watch and see, so these are no secrets to what\u2019s going on. \u201cSo for us, it\u2019s just a matter of capitalizing on those things, making sure we\u2019re very aware, eyes open in that first round, stay away from that left hand. We stay away from that left hand, it\u2019s going to be a short night. Who do you think will win, when Donald Cerrone meets Conor McGregor at UFC 246, on January 18th, 2020?
